Log in to Box

In the previous step you chose to use your own Box App for authenticating Postman.

In this step, we will use the Client ID and Client Secret you provided to log you in and create an Access Token for your user.

The reason to log in

Currently you have provided us with the following information.

These credentials allow any program or piece of code to authenticate itself to the Box API. It represents the Box App you created but it doesn't tell the API who you, the User, are.

To authenticate yourself you will need to send your browser to the Box login screen to authorize your Box App to access to your User account.

Setting this flow up can be hard, which is why we have made this straightforward for you with the button below.

Log into your Box app

In the previous step you chose to use our preconfigured Box App.

The reason to log in

Currently we have no idea who you, the User are and therefore we can't authenticate you when making API calls to the Box API. To authenticate yourself you will need to send your browser to the Box login screen to authorize our Box App to access to your User account.

Setting this flow up can be hard, which is why we have made this straightforward for you with the button below.
